Extremely! A mobile safari allows you to get up close and personal to nature. The campsites are unfenced and game roams freely. Exhilarating!
The mobility of the camp allows us to access remote areas and enables you to visit a diversity of locations on one safari, ensuring that you get a thorough taste of all that Botswana has to offer.
Your safari does include a safari guide and cook, however the Botswana Adventurer Safari is a participation style safari and guests will be required to assist with all camp chores, e.g. pitching tents, making fires, dishes etc which gives guests a true mobile camping bush experience.
The campsites that we use are wilderness campsites in Botswana’s National Parks and Game Reserves to experience the true essence of the bush and are not fenced.
Each vehicle is equipped with satellite phone communication to guarantee contact with our Maun base. Our guides carry a first aid kit at all times and have been trained in its use. A safety briefing will be given on your first day.
Yes, on arrival all guests are required to sign an indemnity form before the safari departs.
The Botswana Adventurer Safari departs with a minimum of 2 guests and a maximum of 9 guests.
If you are a single traveller and are willing to share with another single guest of the same sex, there will be no single supplement. If you specifically require a single tent, there will be an additional charge of 15% of the total safari cost.
Tipping is welcomed in Botswana and in restaurants the usual 10% is acceptable as no service charge is levied. If you are extremely happy with our service – An average would be US$40 per person for the guide and US$ 20 per person for the cook for the 7 days is appropriate.
Yes we do have a vegetarian menu.
All of our vehicles are equipped with 12v (cigarette lighter type) adaptors for charging camera batteries.
